Position Papers
Keep Los Gatos the Town we Love to Live In
Los Gatos' image is of a classic small town, a balanced community where teachers, shopkeepers, doctors, policemen, and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs live, work, play and raise their families; where children grow up and stay to raise their own; where seniors stay to live their years in dignity; where community values and history inform the future. It's an image at risk.
